  • Hidden password dump tool was used to fight pirates

    Developer says tool was intended to target one specific cracker.

    The usually staid world of professional-grade flight simulations was rocked by controversy over the weekend, with fans accusing mod developer FlightSimLabs (FSLabs) of distributing "malware" with an add-on package for Lockheed Martin's popular Prepar3d simulation. The developer insists the hidden package was intended as an anti-piracy tool, but has removed what it now acknowledges was a "heavy-handed" response to the threat of people stealing its add-on.

    The controversy started Sunday when Reddit user crankyrecursion noticed that FSLabs' Airbus A320-X add-on package was setting off his antivirus scanner.
